Rohde & Schwarz has designed two different two-path diode power sensor with excellent price/performace ratio and differing frequency ranges. With a dynamic range of 80 dB for measurement of CW and modulated signals and a maximum power of +20 dBm, these Power Sensors are very useful measurement instruments for a vast number of measurement tasks.
The Bird Directional Power Sensor (DPS) is the most flexible RF sensor on the market today. With this Dual-Socket, Thruline® sensor, you may select from a wide range of Bird Elements to tailor the unit to your needs over a wide range of frequencies and power levels.
The MA24118A power sensor is designed to provide accurate average power measurements from 10 MHz to 18 GHz over 60 dB of dynamic range. The sensor employs a "dual path" architecture that provides (similar to thermal sensor) True-RMS measurements over the entire frequency and dynamic range, enabling users to make highly accurate average power measurements for CW, multi-tone, and digitally modulated signal up to 18 GHz. The sensors have internal and external triggering capability that facilitates individual slot power measurements of TDMA waveforms as well as burst power measurements of periodic and non-periodic waveforms.
Bird’s 7020 Power Sensor provides forward and reflected power measurement over a 350 MHz to 4.0 GHz frequency range. It’s ideal for a myriad of applications including, but not limited to: public safety, WiMAX/WLAN, analog broadcast, analog/digital cellular, tactical military, radar, avionics, analog/digital broadcast, GPS, Bluetooth, public safety, telematics, GSM, GPRS, EDGE, UMTS, HSDPA, and more.
The Bird Directional Power Sensor (DPS) is the most flexible RF sensor on the market today. With this Dual-Socket,Thruline® sensor, you may select from a wide range of Bird Elements to tailor the unit to your needs over a wide range of frequencies and power levels. Also, select field changeable input and output RF connectors from dozens of types including [N, BNC, HN, 7/16 DIN].
The MA243X0A series Microwave CW USB Power Sensors employ a single-path diode architecture to provide fast, accurate average power measurements from 10 MHz up to 50 GHz with 90 dB of dynamic range.
Features and Benefits:
Fast. Accurate. USB-capable. Power sensors from Rohde & Schwarz
The most important features for accurate and simple power measurements are maximum measurement accuracy and speed, and easy operation with a base unit or PC/laptop. The R&S®NRP family combines all these features with the R&S®NRP2 base unit, R&S®NRPV virtual power meter PC software and a wide range of USB-capable power sensors.
